I could write a bunch of words here and pretend we were going to do something else with the picture of his elbow post-arthroscopic surgery Braun Strowman tweeted out this afternoon (Dec. 7), but why beat around the bush? Wrestling fans love to play doctor online - and maybe at home, too, but that’s none of my business.
Anyway, let’s just get right down to it...
Does this look like the elbow of a man who will be ready to wrestle a week from Sunday? How much do you think Braun will be able to do in his TLC match with Baron Corbin at the pay-per-view (PPV) of the same name on Dec. 16?
Strowman and Corbin are scheduled to wrestle in San Jose with a permanent General Manager job at stake for Baron and a shot at Universal champ Brock Lesnar at Royal Rumble on the line for the Monster Among Men. In story, the acting GM and his associates Bobby Lashley & Drew McIntyre “shattered” Strowman’s elbow. In reality, he’s said to have reaggravated it at Survivor Series last month, resulting in a surgical procedure at Dr. Andrew’s facility in Birminghan, Alabama last week.
What’s your diagnosis/fantasy booking, Drs. Cageside?
